't think we can defend the consulate. of course they know they sent susan rice out to say that this was a spontaneous demonstration triggered by a hateful video. the president's repeated it several times. when we knew it was not true. i was on "face the nation" that sunday and the president of the libyan national assembly came on right away and said this is an al qaeda attack. there was no demonstration. what they are trying to sell flies in the face of the facts. what they were trying to sell is al qaeda's on the run because we got bin laden. al qaeda is coming back everywhere. you know that, piers. they have taken over parts of mali. they are all through libya. they are on a comeback in iraq. they are coming into syria in droves, by the way, while we watch 34,000 people being massacred. so of course our veterans, of course our men and women in the military don't trust this commander in chief and they have no reason to do so. >> if mitt romney wins the election, what do you think in the end will have been the key determining factor? >> i think the first debate obviously.
